Manfred Osman Korfmann (April 26, 1942 in Cologne - August 11, 2005, in Ofterdingen, Baden-W rttemberg) was a German archaeologist. As a school assistant in Beit Jala/Bethlehem (West Bank, then in Jordan) he developed a great interest in archaeology. Thereupon he decided to pursue studies, from 1962 to 1970, on prehistory, ancient history and archaeology at the University of Frankfurt/Main and the American University of Beirut. He received his doctorate in 1970 at Frankfurt/Main. From 1971-72 he was a scientific researcher at the University of Frankfurt/Main with the project of mapping Africa funded by the German federal government. Among other things he worked from 1971-1978 as a scientific adviser to the German Archaeological Institute in Istanbul, leading excavations of a small Bronze-age fortress at Demircihuyuk in north-west Turkey. From 1978 to 1982 he was an academic assistant at the Deutsches Arch ologisches Institut, Berlin, where in 1980 he obtained his Habilitation, following which he undertook some lecturing work at the University of Frankfurt/Main.
